Slim Dusty


  1. You either stayed up late or got up early to post this. It's 11:30 am. on Friday the 20th here, and we are 7 hrs ahead of you by the clock but a calendar day behind. So, if you just posted, it was 4:30 in the morning.

  4. He sang Waltzing Matilda. I remember him. This is great.

  5. Never heard of him. I did read about him in Wikipedia today. There is so much about which I know nothing.
